I have a horrible metal clanking noise when turning that started a few months back originally with sharp turns however this is getting worse and now makes the noise with smaller turns and whether I am turning right or left although it seems to be worse when turning left...I have had the ball joints greased which helped slightly for a little while and it is now worse than ever. Any suggestions? It really is a horrible noise in the front and I can feel it in the steering wheel and floorboard.

Really you NEED to have your front end and steering inspected ASAP before you hurt your self, there has to be something broken or very worn out that at this point could be a safety issue.
